Copeland MP invited to chair nuclear conference panel


Copeland MP Trudy Harrison is set to chair a panel at a nuclear conference for the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

The Commercialisation of the Small Nuclear 2 conference takes place in London on December 2.

Mrs Harrison has been invited to chair the MPs’ and Peers’ Panel at the event.

She said: “As I consistently reinforce, nuclear energy is vital to the climate reduction target of 2050 and Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) are a key component due to their fleet build potential. Small Modular Reactors are being developed with some reactors already embarking on the Generic Design Assessment process.”

Mrs Harrison says she considers the Sellafield, Fellside and Moorside sites as common sense locations given the need for industrial electricity, the access and nuclear licensed site benefits but most importantly the decades of highly skilled experience and a community that understands nuclear.

“There is nobody more disappointed that we have yet to secure Moorside, and every day I work to ensure a strong and confident nuclear future not just for Copeland but also the whole industry,” she added.

The Government is providing £80million to develop SMRs working with and supporting private sector partners to develop technology, including with a consortium led by Rolls-Royce.
